Free city, this is a shout out to every young brother ya know
That's doin' his thing right now, keep ya head up
He's walkin' the yard, wishin' he had wings like this
You know fly up out that joint, man

If I could, fly away, ooh and I wouldn't come back
No more, I, I'd turn around
Just to see you for the last time

See, now I know, hey, that it won't be easy
I done fought in a battle and I done made it this far
I gotta few more feet but it's still 'The Longest Yard'

Man, it's 'The Longest Yard' I ever had to get in my life
And see my life ain't right, if my wife don't write
My nigga can't eat if the fish don't bite
My raise the gross sales, like Mike and Ike

My big brother almighty
I keep a gamma ray, I'ma G-5 G
Take a G-5 jeep, G-5 deep
Too some of their bare feet
And that jeep don't speak

Listen mayne, they lock it down round here
See body bag and gag and your found round here
This as serious as it sound round here
The guards guard the ground, 4 pounds round here

And they ain't playin', they're just lettin' you know
That anything they want to happen, nigga, happen real slow
Get the word from upstairs that you're in that hole
I cant take it, I'm just ready to go

If I could, fly away, ooh and I wouldn't come back
No more, I, I'd turn around
Just to see you for the last time

See, now I know, hey, that it won't be easy
I done fought in a battle and I done made it this far
I gotta few more feet but it's still 'The Longest Yard'

Yeah, yeah, it's still 'The Longest Yard'
It's still 'The Longest Yard', it's still the longest
Fought in a battle and I done made this far

I'm in my cell 20 hours a day
Doin' push ups ever hour a day
'Cause I'm tryin' to keep the cowards away
That's why I'm markin' off the calendar days
Tryin' to get it out of the way

And I'm just tryin' to keep a piece of mine
And I'm gon' shame a motherfucker with a piece of mine
'Cause they tryin' to take a piece of mine
So I'm gon' slice his ass a piece at a time

But now that they close the door
Lock me in and cell 30 deep but it's built for 10
Tell me, what kind of world they got you in?
With the barbed wire fences, box you in

From now, til they turn off the lights
I'ma read anything in sight
It's kinda hard tryin' to read at night
But I'ma change my life
And hope another brother take this flight

If I could, fly away, ooh and I wouldn't come back
No more, I, I'd turn around
Just to see you for the last time

See, now I know, hey, that it won't be easy
I done fought in a battle and I done made it this far
I gotta few more feet but it's still 'The Longest Yard'

Yeah, yeah, it's still 'The Longest Yard'
It's still 'The Longest Yard', it's still the longest
Fought in a battle and I done made this far

Oh no, I gotta make it out this place some how
Oh no, man, I really believe that I done turned it around
Oh no, you see, all I need is that second chance to show
Since I crossed the ration, my obligation of rehabilitation

Oh no, punch me high and kick me low
Oh no, I mean it's gonna take more than that for them to break my soul
Oh no, man, it's hard for people to understand what it's like to be
Gated, incarcerated, I just can't take it
But I'ma make it man to see better days

If I could, fly away, ooh and I wouldn't come back
No more, I, I'd turn around
Just to see you for the last time

See, now I know, hey, that it won't be easy
And I done fought in a battle and I done made it this far
I gotta few more feet but it's still 'The Longest Yard'

Yeah, yeah, it's still 'The Longest Yard'
It's still 'The Longest Yard', it's still the longest
Fought in a battle and I done made this far

If I could fly away
If I could, I'd turn around
If I could fly away, yeah
If I could, I'd turn around
If I could fly away
